Hi, my name is Tim, if the security light is flashing, then the computer is not reconizing the key, have you tried the spare key?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
We will try that.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 4 years ago.
if it doesnt start with the spare, then the computer has lost programing for the key, and it will need to be reprogrammed, the dealer can do this, but we use mobile locksmiths to come out to the vehicle and reprogram it, they are cheaper then the dealer and it saves a tow bill to the dealer,Tim

not correct.
